He stashed a bag of swag
In the boot of his beamer
Walked into the bar
Asked anybody seen her
Ten Bag Terry said ''You
Heard the news
She was waltzing down
The frontline wearing no shoes? ''
He got a Jack Daniels
And a Budweiser Chaser
To Ten Bag Terry said
''I'll see you later''
Met her on the street
Met her on the corner
She was, she was ready to rumble

Wanna build a barricade with you
Watch the molotovs fly high with you
I wanna spray paint the city
Situationist Graffiti
I wanna build a barricade with you

So, they scored a bag of joy off the gravedigger's daughter
Clocked the back slapping coppers
Coming out of the whorehouse
Knock off Nigel dissing Indonesia
Flogging knock off Nikes to some kids
Down from Cleveland
Everybody's talking Frankie got deported
Gangsters in their uniforms keep on walking
He put a brick in her hand - said "lets go try our luck"
I'll gamble a gram that well that we don't get busted

Wanna build a barricade with you
Watch the molotovs fly high with you
I wanna spray paint the city
Situationist Graffiti
I wanna build a barricade with you

liberté, égalité, fraternité, vis la police

    General CommentThe French phrase, "liberté, égalité, fraternité, vis la police", translated into English is, "freedom, equality, brotherhood...screw the police"

    These lyrics, except for a few subtle differences, are the same as those in Alabama 3's "Hits and Exit Wounds" album's, "Ska'd for Life (Orbital Mix)".


    The song seems to be about revolution, but I hope someone can propose some more specifics.
